The Text-Image Linking Environment (TILE) is a web-based tool for creating and editing image-based electronic editions and digital archives of humanities texts. Out of the box, TILE 1.0 supports the following tools and functionality:
Image markup tool
Annotate regions of an image by drawing rectangles, polygons, and ellipses, apply labels to selections, and manually create links between sections of an image and transcript lines.
Importing and exporting tools
Import TEI P5 or JSON data directly into TILE or create a script to import from various XML formats. Export your data as TEI or JSON to save your progress or use scripts to output into any XML, HTML, or text-based format. Additional import/export tools can be developed as plugins.
Semi-automated line recognizer
Extend the core functionality of TILE by creating a plugin that can manipulate TILE’s interface, filter and process data, and connect to other tools.
